Wireless N adapter ships

Rokland has announced its next generation of wireless USB 2.0 adapter, the RokN generation 2, an 802.11n draft 2.0 device geared toward Mac users. The new wireless adapter works with Mac platforms, Windows 2000, XP and Vista, and numerous Linux variations. The Gen2 device brings Wireless N to macs that are otherwise limited to B- and G-series connections, an advantage in a household where one legacy computer could slow an entire N-based network.

The new adapter is capable of up to 300Mb/sec, a large jump over Wireless-G connections, and geared towards users who want to stream video or join multiplayer gaming sites. The adapter is backwards compatible with B and G standards and offers security support for 64/128-bit WEP, WPA/WPA2 & WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK and Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS).

The RokN generation 2 USB adapter works with both USB 2.0 and 1.1 standards and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later. It costs $35 and is now shipping.
